The  FreeBSD « ports »  is a  collection  of applications,  ready to  be
installed.  Porting an application means ensuring it builds and installs
properly, not necessarily modifying the source code.  It's rather a kind
of packaging for this specific platform.

The gui for  choosing compile-time options cannot  be incorporated as-is
into Cocoon, because it relies intensively on the FreeBSD ports system.
